Ashtanga Weekend with Joey Miles
SATURDAY 29th – SUNDAY 30TH OCTOBER
SATURDAY + SUNDAY 10am – 12pm MYSORE STYLE PRACTICE
This is the traditional way to practice ashtanga yoga, receive individual guidance and hands on adjustment while practicing in a small group. This is ideal for seasoned practitioners who no longer feel the need to be told what to do next, having committed an appropriate string of poses to memory observe the subtle daily workings of the body, mind and emotions as you unravel any negative patterning and cultivate integration, wisdom and freedom.
SATURDAY 29TH OCTOBER 1 – 4PM
Standing postures deconstructed:
This workshop deconstructs the alignment and actions within the different groupings of standing posture: Forward bends, Laterals and Twists . Links between, for example Trikonasana and Vasishtasana will show how the same key principles of alignment apply across the board – from simple to advanced poses.
Jumping through and back, handstands and headstands:
We will examine the actions across the shoulder girdle and learn the techniques used (from the very first step back in a sun salute) that plug you into the earth and thereby allow the graceful float up to handstand.
SUNDAY 30TH OCTOBER 1-4PM
Backbends are re-examined and re-named – Extending the front body.
We will learn the key actions in the feet, legs and pelvis that create an optimal kinetic chain of movement up through the spine, thereby back bending without compression or pain.
This workshop uses the poses from the beginning of the intermediate series – students do not have to have a perfect primary series however this is not appropriate fro beginners.
Joey came to yoga in 1998 after pursuing martial arts, physical theatre and the circus. After years of apprenticeship with Hamish Hendry and studying with Pattabhi Jois he was Authorised to teach the Primary Series in 2004, he then went on to run Triyoga’s daily Mysore class for 4 years.
In 2009 he and his family moved to Hebden Bridge and set up Yorkshire’s first Mysore programme – Ashtanga Yoga Leeds.
Joey regularly returns to KPJAYI to study with his teacher Sharat Jois, in 2012 he received Authorisation level 2 (blessing to teach the full second series) and in 2014 he completed the third series.
